Revolutionary War Continental Army Officer. The older brother of General George Rogers Clark and explorer William Clark, he was an attorney by profession. When the Revolutionary War started he raised a company of volunteers which he commanded as Captain. While serving in General George Washington's army he participated in the Battles of Brandywine, Germantown, Monmouth and Paulus Hook. Commissioned Lieutenant Colonel as a result of his service in the action at Paulus Hook, he subsequently served at Charleston, South Carolina, where he surrendered with General Benjamin Lincoln's command. He remained a prisoner of the British until paroled in 1781. In 1793 he was commissioned Major General of Virginia militia. In 1802 he moved to Louisville, Kentucky, joining other members of his family who preceded him including George Rogers Clark. Becoming a large land holder, he lived at his home "Trough Spring", (which still stands) until his death in 1811. (bio by: Steve Dunn)
